Day 8 - Christmas greeting from Ethiopia!

Day 8: Christmas greeting from Ethiopia!

Through advent we’ll be sharing with you what Christmas is like for some of our partners around the world. Today partner Kale Heywet Church (EKHC) shares about Christmas in Ethiopia.

‘Christmas here is a little different to the UK! On Christmas Eve, we have a special devotion time in the EKHC office and share gifts with one another. We call Christmas ‘Genna’ or ‘Lidet’ which comes from the word Gennana, meaning “imminent” and expresses the coming of the Lord and the freeing of mankind from sin.

It used to be common to use a locally-logged conifer tree as a Christmas tree around our homes, but it is now widely recognised that this is not wise use of natural resources. Nowadays, it is more common to use an artificial tree or have no tree at al!’

Please pray for our partners across Eastern Africa today.
